Agree. I run an exotic motorcycle forum and what I did to combat the same issue of spammers is each new member has to write a few sentences on why they want to join the community and which bike/model they own. Problem solved....

Not sure about you, but I, or the staff doesn’t have the time to dedicate to go through each new individual registration to verify info. Not sure if you have seen how many members the forum has or not, but, none of us have that kind of time to dedicate to the forum, especially since we are all volunteers.

Would you rather see all the spam posts and links in all sections of the forum? If you have an easier way to help combat the spammers, please enlighten us. Maybe we kind of like people to be part of the community before being able to sell things? Not trying to be an ass, but you are acting like making 5 posts around the forum is a big deal. I could understand the frustration if it was maybe 50 or 100 posts.

Or, for that matter, if you just want to sell parts and don't want to participate on the forum in any other way, just put them up on ebay or craigslist. No reason to advertise them here.

I agree with Doge, this forum is not just a marketplace, it is also a Lotus Community.
